Antoni Robert: field recordings, sound processing

September 2015
I play no instruments in this recording.

From September the 3rd until the 6th I attended all the concerts of the Life Lines festival dedicated to Hans-Joachim Roedelius in Berlin, at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt. From my hotel near Ostkreutz station to the concert hall everyday I had to go through seven S-Bahn stations. This was like a ritual every day. Not knowing what for, I started doing some field recordings. During the day along Berlin streets, then at the concert hall I recorded samples of the concerts and samples of the ambient inside Eno's hommage installation “To Achim”, the dark room with 81 candles. The sound ambient inside the dark room consisted in a few notes captured from Roedelius recordings and arranged in a sort of continous drone by Brian Eno. Back home I realized that I could make a sort of personal hommage to Achim using those field recordings. Sections one to seven illustrate the S-Bahn journey through seven stations, using the city field recordings, street musicians, church bells, and other sounds. And in section seven Achim's notes are used, sorted out and combined in order to obtain three different ambient drones. The first one in order to remember the relaxing mood inside the dark room, the second one just combining a few electronic notes, and the third and longest one based of a few piano notes. So this is my hommage to Hans-Joachim Roedelius.

Subject: Trains + Eno = fascination
"combining captured voices, announcements, public transport (of course), street noise and more in an array of compelling sonic collages."
